I watched it with my 11 & 14 year old (mature) girls and am glad we did

My 11-year-old thought that the movie was rated R because one of the characters is shown habitually smoking a bowl. My 14-year-old thought that the movie might not be for teenagers because it "depicted the harsh realities of life and how peoples hopes and dreams are often crushed". She rated it a 7.5/10 and said that it was a good movie. What made me uncomfortable was the regular overtones of sex. One couple was shown in bed on a regular basis. All that was shown was kissing but the implication was that sex happened. Another character had the reputation of having casual sex—again, none was actually shown. This movie is real life, as only Ira Glass and Mike Birbiglia can tell it (even though I'm mad at Ira for being so political lately).
